So this anime has been on my "want to watch" list for a while and I was hoping I would like it. It's a reverse harem and romance anime, two of my absolute favorite types. However, I didn't expect to like it this much. I ended up a sobbing mess at the end and basically had a panic attack. As a side note, I just couldn't stop watching and finished this in one day. I absolutely loved the animation of this, V1 Studio really does a wonderful job of animating. I'm not sure if I'm good at rating animes since I just end up loving it no matter what, but I'll try my best.  Story The story took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. I was hooked from the beginning, and throughout the story, it kept me interested. I felt frustrated, happy, sad, and angry all during these 12 episodes. I can't find anything wrong regarding the plot, really. I didn't find anything overly unreasonable or crazy. I loved the suspense at the end where we're waiting in anticipation what Mei will decide to do. I was personally saddened by the ending, but I feel like it's the best ending we can get. The ending doesn't leave us with a completely closed book or concrete ending but instead leaves it open as if more is to come. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the story. Animation Honestly, there's nothing wrong about the animation. Literally. Nothing. I loved the cute chibi moments, they were adorable. The characters and scenery were animated beautifully. V1 Studios really is amazing.  Sound The voices excited me so much. Whenever a new character was introduced, I would be overwhelmed with happiness because they all had such "ikemen" voices. All of the characters had such fitting seiyuus, and I wasn't disappointed with a single one. The music was wonderful. The jazzy-type opening was one of the factors that hooked me to this during the beginning. It's definitely going on my playlist after this. Characters I have but one word to explain my reactions to all the characters: fangirl. I squealed so loudly during this anime, my voice probably went up five octaves whenever a new character was introduced. I can't really pick a favorite, they're all wonderful characters it's Shunsou shhhh. I fell in love with the character designs of all of them. The voices match their personality and appearance wonderfully. One thing I will say. After finishing the anime, I wish we saw more about Charlie. He's such a mysterious character and I really would like to learn more about him. In fact, I would like to see more about the past of the main characters. Other than that, the characters didn't fail to please me.

I enjoyed this anime quite a lot. The concept was pretty cool, the animation was lovely and all the characters were just so charming! I especially loved the opening; the jazz style really did wonders for me. Though, I did have a few problems with it. The first is that I didn’t really see any character development when it can to Mei. Sure, they said that she had learned things; however, I did not see it that way. The premise was that she was lonely and didn’t have any friends, I thought the creators could have used this to develop her rather than her just being the same throughout the whole of it. Another problem I had which to be fair is only minor and doesn’t bother me all that much is the fact that there was a guy in the opening that had only been in what? 2 episodes? I suppose it’s because he’s an option in the otome game, I just thought that he would be in it more. I think the final thing that rattled me a bit was the fact that we didn’t learn the reason behind why Otojirou was doing what he was doing. I was really intrigued to know but we never found out. Now, that ending was alright. I definitely expected much more. I felt like it kind of came out of nowhere, it didn’t feel true to the character and it just didn’t give me the kind of closure I wanted after watching this. However, despite all these negatives I listed, I really did have a fantastic time watching this. All the characters were so charming and lovable, that was the key element that made this so great. As a final note, I’d like to say that I was routing for Syunso much more than I was Ougai.
